of these fights that have broken out. as we sit here today, chuck hagel, the former senator from nebraska s in the middle of confirmation hearings and a flash point in the haagle here's is is he supportive -- hagel is is he supportive of israel. questions during the campaign by governor romney, is president obama adequately supportive of israel. can you characterize the relationship as you see it from your perspective? >> let me first talk about the relationship between the people of israel and the united states. we're talking about a relationship which has very deep root. it goes back many ways to the beginning of the puritan experience in this country 400 years ago. pure tans thought of themselves as the new israel. this was the new promised land. they had a strong connection do the old israel, the jews, strong connection to the land of israel. so the idea of america was almost indistinguishable from the idea of re-creating a jewish state in the land of israel. you can find founding fathers, is this lincoln, harretruman, all supported this idea of a re-created jewish state. deep spiritual

. senators graham tanked susan rice. they have filibusters chuck hagel over benghazi. and now mccain still claims there is a massive cover-up. what is going on here? >> i think what is going on is a bit strange, just as you've implied. let me tell you where i was on friday. i was out at the new naval complex, the bethesda walter reed medical complex, visiting with wounded warriors. these are people who paid almost the maximum price, some would say even more than the maximum price in iraq or afghanistan, triple amputees, double amputees. and we were talking about this. they brought the issue up of why mccain, graham, inhofe, cruz and others are opposing hagel. the real reason. and, you know, they dismissed inhofe. he never saw a foxhole in his life. they dismissed graham. he is an air force lawyer, never saw combat in his life. they dismissed cruz. they think he is an idiot. but when it came to john mccain, they shrugged their shoulders, and they looked at me and asked me why? this man is a veteran. this man was a prisoner of war. he showed a great deal of courage under stress. what is wron
